  • Mar 25 2013: A lot of good ideas are listed here. I think he should recruit other entrepeneurs, with money to invest, and form a forum of future innovation. This group could devide the key projects mentioned above, with education, and mass transit being my favorites, and he could oversee or guiide and direct the teams to meet the goals of the innovation project. We could create enough jobs here in the USA to meet our employment goals and have plenty of additional jobs for coperative countries who want to advance their economies.

    Just as the USA was a model for a new world order for government and human rights, the Innovation Forum could be the model for a new world order for industry industry and the free enterprise system.
